    I hate when people ask this question. You realize that in a nearly perfectly competitive market, such as that for high end compilers/IDEs, two products that can be compared using 'better' or 'worse' or some other similar qualitative judgment cannot exist?

    To answer your first question: it works fine for me using the free cmdline tools. But you need to use int main(), which returns a value of 0 if successful

    first THIS BELONGS ON THE C FORUM!


    add
    fflush(stdout);
    after your call to printf();

    >1 more thing , wats better visual c++ or borland?

    this is almost impossible to answer fairly its all opinion i use CodeWarrior but it is not for the faint of heart, it is far less forgiving of code error than Borland or MSVC, not really a Compiler for beginners, Most people start with MSVC since its easy to learn and very forgiving.

    Depens

    Borland's latest vs. VC++ 6 (not .net/7)

    Borland is better for applications
    VC++ is better for games

    Code warrior is supposted to be better then both.

    I don't how vc++.net stacks up, thought.

    Code Warrior? The one made by Metroworks? That thing is a slow pile of crap. I'd go with Microsoft because it seems to be more widely used and it's really easy to use.

    whateva! mine is like lightning, its faster than MSVC and compiles code at about a fifth the size without even optimizing it, plus my code execution is slightly faster... AND IM USING VERSION 4 FOR CRAPS SAKE!! god only knows what 7.0 can do! I can't afford an update but when i can i know where my money goes!

    You can help me too. Does anyone know why I can't post a thread. I click on New thread and It says no forum specified. And I did follow a valid link.
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Hello";
    return 0;
    }

    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Hello";
    return 0;
    }

    Talking woah too many replies :)

    i know CodeWarrior is the best and is not hard to use (tho i use it on macs @ my school). Did some1 say it is slow...
    i dont think so. on those crappy macs it loads so quickly as well as it compiles fast

    just my opinion!!!

    What page were you on when you tried to post (copy & paste the URL into your reply from your address bar).

    I'll try from there.

    I guess I must be wrong about code wrrior, maybe I got confused with another compiler or something.
